    'Fight' [audio:|titles=Cybertrybe - Fight]

    They began as “Industrial Chaos” in 1994 as a “non-band” techno/industrial project but quickly developed into a full blown band and live act just a year later. Also came the name change to CYBERTRYBE. After playing out in Metro Detroit for a year in 1997, they were nominated for a Detroit Music Award and won 3 the following year in 1998. CYBERTRYBE has been nominated every year since.

  • Shudder

    'Change' [audio:|titles=Shudder - Change]

    From the ashes of the band Kerosene, comes a new hard hitter in the Detroit music scene: Shudder. What started as a four piece in 2001 has evolved into a 5 piece machine with little chance of slowing down
